Ode to a Young Man Raised by a Single Mother



This won’t really be an ode,
dear young man,
but rather announcement
to the world that you are possible.

You who do not feel superior,
respect and assist women,
do not take more
than your share.

Yes you are beautiful,
lovable and loved.
All women—for thousands
of years—fete you!
